Herring spicy salted dry
Shared with me this recipe a very nice man, who gave his life sea. He taught me that salting the fish need without removing the guts and gills - then the output to get the herring, and the smell, and a completely different taste. And most importantly for me, the fish meat is not compacted, as in pickling brine.


  • Herring

    1 kg

  • Salt

    100 g

  • Sugar

    1 Tbsp

  • Black pepper

    10 piece

  • Allspice

    10 piece

  • Coriander

    10 piece

  • Carnation

    10 piece

  • Bay leaf

    3 piece


Buy or catch some herring. To bring home, if the herring are frozen, defrost and most importantly, not Eviscerate. Gills not removed.
The amount of spices to your taste, I take 10-15 pieces of black pepper, a couple cloves. In a coffee grinder to grind to small pieces, or all the spices put in a plastic bag and rolled with a rolling pin. To measure the scale of 80 grams of salt, definitely large stone, add sugar, spices, mix it all together. Separately to defer 20 g of salt, add a little spice.
Take the herring, in gaberke her to pour a little salt (20 g). Then all her good coat with salt mixture.
Put in glass dish BELLY UP!!! And so to continue to pickle all the herrings, laying in a circle. If there is no glass pans, you can get enamel, but to pave its bottom nepremennym parchment. Close the lid of our pot and it costs 10 hours at room temperature, at the bottom of the tank during this time fluid is formed, it is desirable to monoklonale pan to moisten the herring, but this is optional. After 10 hours, the pot put it in the refrigerator for another 10 hours.
And on the second day of the herring is ready!!!
It can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days, but I'm a big coward, afraid of different poisoning, so do the following: herring cut into fillets and depending on what I need or just cut into slices or leave whole layer of fillets. Put in jars like in the pictures, pour a little oil, and put it in the freezer, as we need to get; thawed herring for approximately 20 minutes, is freezing the taste is not affected
It turns out the fish is salted, spicy, delicious!
